We say

James Gillespie is a London-born, Scottish raised singer-songwriter who over the past two years has clocked up an impressive 46m combined streams for his heartfelt odes. Nestling between Hozier and Rag’n’Bone Man with a touch of James Blake sounds wise, James is an engaging emerging artist who has already been tipped by Elton John as an artist to watch for in 2019, having previously been playlisted and interviewed on his Rocket Hour show on Beats 1. Backed by ethereal melodies and a beautifully sparse production, Kerosene - his latest releaseis an earnest and honest slice of exquisite penmanship that captures the tale of infatuation effortlessly. With major streaming support for his releases with inclusions on Spotify (NMF, The Pop List, Mellow Pop, Chill Hits) and Apple Music (Best of the Week, Breaking Pop, Mellow Days) editorial playlists, as well as praise from online tastemakers like Complex, Clash, the Line of Best Fit and Hilly Dilly among others, James is truly an artist to watch out for this year.
